Carlo Carrà Mother & Son

BROWNRIGG
Circa 1950s Original lithograph by Carlo Carrà ( Quargneto 1881-Milano 1966 )" Mother & Son" signed and numbered, with certificate of authenticity.

Carlo Carrà ( February 11, 1881 – April 13, 1966) was an Italian painter and a leading figure of the Futurist movement that flourished in Italy during the beginning of the 20th century. In addition to his many paintings, he wrote a number of books concerning art. He taught for many years in the city of Milan.

Carrà was born in Quargnento, near Alessandria (Piedmont). At the age of 12 he left home in order to work as a mural decorator.

In 1899–1900, Carrà was in Paris decorating pavilions at the Exposition Universelle, where he became acquainted with contemporary French art. He then spent a few months in London in contact with exiled Italian anarchists, and returned to Milan in 1901. In 1906, he enrolled at Brera Academy (Accademia di Brera) in the city, and studied under Cesare Tallone. In 1910 he signed, along with Umberto Boccioni, Luigi Russolo and Giacomo Balla the Manifesto of Futurist Painters, and began a phase of painting that became his most popular and influential.

Carrà's Futurist phase ended around the time World War I began. His work, while still using some Futurist concepts, began to deal more clearly with form and stillness, rather than motion and feeling. Inspired by Trecento painting, children's art, and the work of Henri Rousseau, Carrà soon began creating still lifes in a simplified style that emphasized the reality of ordinary objects.[1] In 1917 he met Giorgio de Chirico in Ferrara, and worked with him there for several weeks. Influenced by de Chirico, Carrà began including mannequin imagery in his paintings.[2] The two artists were the innovators of a style they called "metaphysical painting". By 1919, Carrà's metaphysical phase was giving way to an archaicism inspired by the works of Giotto, whom he admired as "the artist whose forms are closest to our manner of conceiving the construction of bodies in space."[3] Carrà's painting The Daughters of Lot (1919) exemplifies the new direction of his work. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, he concentrated mainly on landscape painting and developed a more atmospheric style.[4] An example from this period is his 1928 Morning by the Sea.

He is best known for his 1911 Futurist work, The Funeral of the Anarchist Galli. Carrà was indeed an anarchist as a young man but, along with many other Futurists, later held more reactionary political views, becoming ultra-nationalist and irredentist before and during the war. He supported fascism after 1918. In the 1930s, Carrà signed a manifesto in which called for support of the state ideology through art.[5] The Strapaese group he joined, founded by Giorgio Morandi, was strongly influenced by fascism and responded to the neo-classical guidelines which had been set by the regime after 1937[6] (but was opposed to the ideological drive towards strong centralism).[7]

Carrà died in Milan in 1966.

Run by Jorge (George) Perez-Martin and David Gibson, Brownrigg's vision is to offer a constantly evolving and eclectic mix of antiques and decorative pieces which will appeal to its UK and international client base.

Brownrigg was originally set up but Jorge almost 20 years ago in West Sussex. Over the last 15 years David and he have sought to hone Jorge's creative drive to shape and direct the business as a go to destination for interior designers, decorators and private clients alike.

Having moved to the Cotswolds several years ago the Brownrigg shop in Tetbury houses a significant and representative selection of the stock that we hold. The website has additional stock most of which is held in our nearby warehouse facility.

The question is often asked about the areas in which Brownrigg specialises. The answer is that whilst we have countries and periods that we are passionate about, we don't really claim to be specialists in a particular field......... we have learnt over many years that our clients come to us because we have such an interesting mix and one that often encourages and tempts clients to try something different. Nothing is 'off limits' so you may find pieces that are a youthful 30 years old and pieces that are several centuries old but as desirable as they were at the time of their creation.

We usually exhibit three times a year at the well known Battersea Antiques and Decorative Fair in London as well as regular coverage and references in the leading interior design and antiques press and publications.
